I got the Tac9er multitool shovel to try out and do a full field test and review. This is a pretty cool 15 in one tool.
This tool has not only a shovel but also a serrated knife on the blade, ruler and axe, hook and wire cutter, harpoon, bottle opener, saw, safety hammer, screw drivers, fire starter and a compass.
It weighs just over 2 pounds but since it has all these tools built into it, you can drop a lot of weight in your bug out bag by carrying this one tool.
I was surprised and impressed with the heavy duty construction of this shovel/multi tool. Most folding shovels I have seen were all quite weak and could barely shovel dirt let alone use any of the accessories with it.
The handle on this multi tool shovel is rugged and feels very tough.
The only problem I had when opening the package is that the threaded nut on the handle was jammed and I had to put it into a vise to get it loose.
I will be putting this shovel and all its accessories through the works in the coming days and weeks so stay tuned for the final field test and review.
